It’s got to seem inevitable…

Listening to the American Theatre Wing podcast of an interview/discussion with director/actor David Cromer, and I loved this quote about how he tries to shape a production:

"It’s got to seem inevitable…it’s got to seem immediate…every moment needs to come out of forces around it that force it to happen."

That’s a wonderful way to look at the flow of a piece, and at the connecting strands that propel us from moment to moment. 

To hear the whole interview, go here, or check out other American Theatre Wing podcasts at Downstage Center or Working In The Theatre.
